Despite dark skies, occasional torrential rain, and high winds, Western Wayne Family Health Centers celebrated May 12th the grand opening of its new Lincoln Park Health Center. State Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Paul Clemente presented CEO Linda Atkins with a special tribute, and Wayne County Commissioner Ilona Varga presented a certificate of congratulations.

Other special guests included Lincoln Park Mayor Thomas E. Karnes, City Council Member Larry Kelsey, and Congressman John Dingell’s district director Derek Dobies, who accepted, on behalf of the Congressman, a National Association of Community Health Centers’ Lifetime Achievement Award presented by Michigan Primary Care Association Board President Joe Ferguson.

Another highlight of the event was Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan’s (BCBSM) grant presentation to Western Wayne Family Health Centers and Covenant Community Care to help strengthen the health care safety net in Wayne County. Western Wayne Family Health Center will use the BCBSM grant to renovate exam rooms and provide integrated primary care and behavioral health care services at the new Lincoln Park Health Center. This is projected to expand care to an additional 4,000 people annually. Covenant Community Care will use the BCBSM grant to help fund clinicians and medical supplies for a new comprehensive Health Center. Click here to read more about the BCBSM grants.
